Great beer. Pours nicely, with a foamy head. Great taste, with chocolate, burned aftertaste. Great differences in taste between bottle and draft. Much much better from draft. SRG (16) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - APR 18, 2008

The best icelandic beer in my opinion JoeMcPhee (9550) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2008
Thanks to haukur for this generous gift. Deep black beer with a thick creamy brown head. Aroma is rich with loads of cocoa and chocolate and a rich charry roastiness. A softly lactic character as well. Flavour is really nice. Rich and toasty and heavily roasted but with almost no bitterness. Softly chocolatey and lightly herbal as well. It’s quite a lovely brew. Nutty with some sweet espresso character. Really lovely stout. Thanks haukur. Geiserich (4607) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 26, 2010
Bottled: Black color, creamy brownish head. Malty aroma, dark chocolate and lots of cacao. Also fruitiness and notes of molasse. Flavor is malty, light sweet and very tasty. Also intensive notes of dry cacao, chocolate, fruity. Finish with roasted malt and roasted malt bitterness. Very tasty stout with pleasant cacao notes. tjthresh (1872) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Bottle from theisti. Pour is black with some brown from the light the gets through the edges. The nose is roasted with some coffee and cream. A bit of oats come though as well. The flavor has some dark chocolate cocoa made with milk, and a little bit of charred malts. A slight amount of hop bitterness. Full bodied, average carbonation, and a balanced finish. Really a nice beer.
